Here are some basic tips for men to get the hair color they want. The list includes how to maintain their chosen hair color.
- When the first gray hairs appear, do color your hair and take the time to find men's hair color that matches your natural hair color.
- Most salons that style men's hair also offer a hair colorist. You can book an advance consultation to avoid any big surprises.
- Once you have chosen a right hair color for you, apply it to the most resistant gray area first. This may include your beard, mustache, and side burns. After such application in the said area, concentrate to where the gray hair is thicker. This usually is around the temples.
- Keep any unused contents of the hair color for later use. However, make sure that the left hair color has not been exposed to the air for more than 2 minutes.
- Because your hair is colored, try to avoid over exposure to chlorinated pools. Sometimes, the chlorine can affect the color of your hair.
- If you have recently just had your hair relaxed or permed, it is imperative to make sure to wait for more than 7 days to use a hair color.
- Remember that highlights do soften the face and as we age, lighter is better. Never over saturate a dark color.
- If you just want to go funky, you can try lightening the tips of a spiky hairstyle, or go totally crazy and color your hair a completely different shade.
